And yet if my compass is simply to be liked by others and say “Yes” to them, I am in big trouble.
I will lose my way. I will look up one day and say, “Who am I? What do I love to do? Where is my passion?”
Each “Yes” I choose means that I have to say “No” to something or someone else. I can only do a finite number of things. Each “No” I say makes room for the possibility for a new “Yes.”
I am trying to live more simply in 2010.
I am learning that living simply requires me to make one of two choices: “Yes” or “No,” over and over again, every day.
My prayer is that I will choose wisely.
